Day 6 – The Nomad Lifestyle

Today’s post is about how I lived the Nomadic Lifestyle that only an online business allows, how I built a multi-million dollar business in the process, and how you can to…

 

Buenos Aires, 2005…

My online marketing business started from a big old heavy HP laptop in a coffee shop in Buenos Aires (ultra thin laptops didn’t exist back then!).

That was a decade ago.

For the next 10 years I worked exclusively from a laptop, little by little building and growing a multi-million dollar online business.

Only last year did I finally get an office, a large monitor (iMac) and a nice ergonomic chair.

The point is, you can build a million dollar business with some pretty basic tools.

A simple laptop, and an internet connection are really all you need.

What this means of course, is that you can have complete geographic freedom and work from pretty much anywhere… and that’s where the ‘Nomad Lifestyle’ fits in…

 

Live in Paradise for a while…

Why not live somewhere exotic (and dirt cheap), while you build your dream business?

During my pre-office nomadic days, I found myself working from random cities all around the world, sometimes on cruise ships, frequently in airport lounges, often at coffee shops, hotels, yachts (thanks Steve!), and more commonly, the couch (which, let me tell you, is not great for your back!).

The other reason an online business lends itself to a nomadic ‘move-when-and-where-you-want’ lifestyle, is because you really can start an online business on a shoestring budget and quickly get to an earning rate of $50 – $100 per day or more… more on a specific example about this shortly.

 

‘Wallet friendly’ destinations

The easiest example for me to give you is Buenos Aires, Argentina.

I’ve lived in Buenos Aires for the past decade, and am got my residency in 2015.

In Buenos Aires, you can rent an apartment for under $500/month. The average price on AirBNB.com is $1350 for the month of March, but there are PLENTY of options for under $500, and if you don’t mind sharing, you can get a room for $200-$300/month.

You’ll need an internet connection as well, a portable hotspot costs about $20/month in Buenos Aires, and you can just top it up whenever you need it.

Add on a budget for food (and drink) of about $15/day, and you’re looking at about $970/month to LIVE in Buenos Aires:

  • Rent: $500/month
  • Internet: $20/month
  • Food: $450/month

That’s a nominal value of just $32/day, something you could EASILY earn from a simple affiliate site, or a couple of hours of outsourcing each day (on a site like Upwork.com and Freelancer.com).

SIDENOTE: An alternative to renting is to just BUY your own apartment… I bought this apartment for $32,000 in 2006, spent $8,000 renovating, and then lived rent-free in Buenos Aires for a few years (I don’t live in this apartment anymore, but it still provides me a healthy little rental income stream each month). 

 

Thailand… $18/day is all you’ll need!

There are a TON of exotic low-cost traveller destinations waiting to be explored, PriceOfTravel.com is a great comparison website, and this page lists the cheapest 136 cities: http://www.priceoftravel.com/world-cities-by-price-backpacker-index/

Some of my personal favorites are:

A few other affordable places to live/work from are:

  • South East Asia… pretty much anywhere.
  • China, pretty much anywhere.
  • Mexico, pretty much anywhere… I’d head to the Yucatán Peninsula though, and probably set my sights on Playa del Carmen.
  • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • Manila, Philippines

 

Shoestring budget businesses?

There are plenty of businesses you can build online that do NOT require paid advertising or any more than $100 of upfront investment.

A few options to consider include:

  • Adsense websites
  • An eCommerce dropshipping store that leverages SEO traffic
  • An affiliate website
  • A Kindle book business

These are just a few options.

Consider my simple truck driver educational affiliate/adsense site, http://www.cdltraininghub.com/.

Assuming you write all the content yourself, the only cost of that website was the domain name ($10/year) and hosting ($50/year). That’s it!

And if you did want to outsource the writing, you’d only be looking at a few hundred bucks anyway.

The income potential on the other hand is comparatively large…

From a site like this, you could easily earn hundreds or even thousdands of dollars each day.

In the case of CDL Training Hub, it really is ‘earn while you sleep’ income. I haven’t touched that site in YEARS, but it still brings in money day after day (and certainly more than enough to live in some of the destinations mentioned above!).

 

Online Business = FREEDOM

Travelling and living the Nomadic Lifestyle might not be your thing, but I bet you’re after some kind of FREEDOM… geographic, financial, or time freedom.

Everyone I’ve ever spoken to about this is driven by at least one of these three types of freedom, and an online business can give it to you unlike any other business model I know of.

If you ARE someone who likes to travel, then I’d highly recommend you to pack your bags, and head to some exotic destination to build your business for a while.

If you’re working a day job that you’re not ready to quit, consider taking a month off and travelling someone cool… you’ll be amazed at the places you can afford to visit when you sit down and crunch the numbers.

I hope this inspires you, writing this post is giving me itchy feet!

  • Jeremy  says:

    I love it Aidan, really puts things in perspective.. Thailand is on my list! 🙂

  • Mark  says:

    This reminds me of how we, as online business owners, can leverage developing economies. Places like the Philippines are known for cheap talent.. so perhaps there’s a way to live on $18/day in a Thai paradise, while spending another $18/day on cheap but talented labor as well.. I’m going to think on this more. Thanks to both of you for these posts, they’re very uplifting at this time of year.

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      Hey Mark, glad you’re enjoying the posts! Quality labor is VERY cheap in places like Philippines, I like the $18 + $18 combo, for $36/day you could be living in paradise with an assistant helping you grow your business 4-6 hours each day!

  • Rob  says:

    My wife and I did a stint in Panama, was quite as cheap as Thailand, but was comparable to Buenos Aires, and very ‘entrepreneur friendly’ as well. Which of the models you’ve mentioned would be best for short term results, to get me to a $40/day or $50/day income rate? Thanks, loving all the posts!

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      Hi Rob, getting to $40/day isn’t difficult with any of the models. For speed, I’d probably choose Dropship eCom.. maybe Kindle.. depends on if you’re able to spend a little money on traffic or not.

  • Miriam mdc  says:

    Definitivamente spain…

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      I (Aidan) LOVE Spain.. I’ve lived in Barcelona and Madrid at different times ..

  • Steve  says:

    Thanks for your insights. It’s hard to believe that it’s you on your CDL Training home page? or is it?

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      Not me Steve, just an avatar / pen-image!

      • Viviann Ng  says:

        Just curious, where do you find the pen-image?

  • Marilynn Ritter  says:

    Loved your post, I am not an on line business but enjoyed day dreaming!

  • Alain D.  says:

    Awesome post, Y’all! Getting all caught up in the mundane, yet required cogs of business-building on the side, I rarely take the time to enjoy the true journey along the road to my ‘why’s’ of building my online business. Thanks Aidan & Steve. Poignant & Perfect.

  • Ceyda Biceroglu  says:

    I’m excited to be ‘working’ from my laptop on MY business (versus day job) when we’re on vacation this April. I’m a 100k Factory student and allowed myself to stop just at the part of loading products and descriptions on the site. I’m going to get that up aND running in January!

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      Awesome Ceyda!

  • Kim  says:

    Everything is so doable once you have broken it down like you have

  • Piia Brownell  says:

    I have lived like this on and off for 16 years, on top of mountains, in remote rainforests,in central australia, vineyards, wonders of the world while running businesses with 3 children and husband. To do it all over the world is an amazing way to really live. Now i live at The Great Barrier Reef with 74 islands,building homes for people. Now thats living!!!!!!
    KEEP SHINING

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      That’s my idea of the good life Piia!

  • Tam Shelton  says:

    Great post, looking to expand my business

  • Thomas  says:

    Awesome! Location independence is my goal!

  • L. Cunningham  says:

    Wow! My current cost is over $70 day. I would love to reduce that to about half. Great thoughts Aidan.

  • Mikey  says:

    Well I don’t dream of living a nomadic lifestyle (love my home and wouldn’t want to give up my horses), I would love the freedoom to visit my friends and family whenever I want to. My current day job limits my time and money!

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      I totally get you Mikey, I also want a base.. for me it’s about having the freedom to choose.. to pack my bags and take my family anywhere I want to, whenever I want to.. that’s really what it’s about for me.. FREEDOM.

  • Patricia Nichol  says:

    The only get away I get is from Calgon.
    “Calgon take me away!”

  • wayne  says:

    Good article but was wondering what medical insurance costs are like and what is the quality of medical care? thanks

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      When we’ve been travelling I’ve used a company called ‘World Nomads’, they offer great cover for a couple of thousands dollars per year.

  • Donna Lankford  says:

    I’m ready to finally figure this out and make money.

  • Travis Leong  says:

    Hi Aidan, you are almost right on South East Asia. Everywhere except Singapore. We are the most expensive city in the world!

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      I’ve never been to Singapore yet, but I’d LOVE to check it out!

  • Paul Adams  says:

    From a British guy living in the Philippines and previously out of Shanghai China, I 100% agree that the online business has allowed me to do this. I tell people that I have not put a pair of shoes on to go to work for the past 10 years, and long may that be the case. Great work Steve & Aidan, looking forward to the boot camp.

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      Awesome Paul 🙂

  • Thomas P  says:

    Starting my new store after the new year. Wish me luck

  • Thomas P  says:

    Starting my new store after the new year

  • Hardy  says:

    Quick question. Do you have to live in the US to win these prizes? It seems to me that from the look of these winners, they could be from the USA or English speaking countries. If so, what are the terms and conditions of this contest? Do you have to live in the US to win the items? If the answer is yes, maybe you should not include me since I live in Brunei. I’m not saying you’re anti-foreign but I don’t see any winners here who are foreign. Just my thoughts.

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      You certainly don’t have to be in the USA, or in an English speaking country.. we’re selecting the prize winners at random. In fact at least 3 of them so far are NOT from the USA… And as a ‘foreigner’ myself (which is a matter of perspective), I’m certainly not anti-foreign, as long as you’ve added your email into the draw, then you’ve got as good a chance to win as anyone 🙂

  • Fridrik Gudmundsson  says:

    Time and geographical freedom are on the top of my list. It would be nice to live in Spain or Thailand and other great places 🙂

  • Abdulrahim  says:

    Inspirational places to live on and live the online lifestyle doing your daily business! Am really motivated and inspired by you guys; Aidan and Steve. And verily, I will meet you guys one day…

  • George  says:

    Can’t wait for the bootcamp and get to see the masterplan for 2017. I have been learning alot of things but have never taken serious action hence never made even a dollar.

  • Paula Robinson  says:

    You make it all sound so easy. I have been at it for 3 years and tried many things. Looking back now, I made it too hard. But I have found my first success business. Now onwards and upwards. I love the traveling idea.

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      If it’s any consolation, it took me (Aidan) a few years of fits and starts to finally get going.. I think that’s a pretty normal process that plenty of folks go through. It really shouldn’t be like that though when the right tools and resources are in place.

      • Marcia Schwanger  says:

        I like that you say “It really shouldn’t be like that though when the right tools and resources are in place.”
        I am banking on the high monthly cost of BPA will be worth it since you guys have been through it and have provided the tools, resources and mentorship to make it a reality… That we can actually get out of debt and be able to realize the dream of geographical freedom and stressful lives for our upcoming (hopeful) retirement!

  • Justin  says:

    Thanks for the information on the places! And waiting for the masterplan to crack on with 2017!

  • Donna Hoffmann  says:

    Love this post Aiden! We almost moved to the Caymans 30 years ago but it is very expensive to live there! Would love to have a place somewhere tropical! Thanks for the incentives to keep us fired up!

  • Bonnie Sholtz  says:

    Great inspiration, yes this motivates me! Is this heaven?

    All the best to my friends out there here we go 2017 the sky is the limit.

    Bonnie

  • David  says:

    Thank you for your tips. Building a business doesn’t have to be incompatible with travel and having fun. Specially if you have an online business. Great!

  • Dino  says:

    This keeps getting as my late grandma would say, “Gooder and Gooder!”

  • Jude Starks  says:

    Thank you so much for this post! It’s awesome to know where you can easily live full or part-time and still run an online business. Terrific inspiration.

  • Lance  says:

    If you’re outsourcing the work and if time isn’t an issue (ie. don’t need to be making money in a month), then which model(s) would you say are the most cost effective? In terms of how much you spend, relative to your ROI. Great stuff you guys! LOVE all the real word comparisons about how much it costs to live in other parts of the world 😀

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      Hi Lance, really really tough to give you a definitive answer here.. some business models like Kindle have GREAT ROI but aren’t as scaleable. In other models, such as Amazon Whitelabel, you might have lower margins of, say, 35%-40%, but can scale up to MILLIONS per month.. so I think you’re best to look at not just ROI, but also scalability (which I’m sure you actually are doing anyway). I LOVE eCom.. dropship eCom, and selling on Amazon.. Affiliate Marketing is great for how ‘hands off’ it can become.. those three are probably my favorites right now…

  • Bill Stephan  says:

    I like this idea!The world is then your oyster!FUN
    Thanks

  • Teresa Brook  says:

    Sounds great!

  • Susan  says:

    Love this post. Very informative and a new way to think through the costs. Any suggestions for dog sitters?:)

  • Neil Tribe  says:

    Hi Aidan & Steve,

    I’m going through my options for the start of the year and it occurs to me that rather than avoiding spreading myself too thin over multiple areas of focus I would benefit from applying myself to about three things. 1. Drop Ship eComm. 2. Authority Web Site. 3. Kindle.

    I take Steve’s point about SEM but I don’t feel up to that yet (spending some time developing an authority site should help with my confidence for SEM) I am still only getting started with 100k Ultra due to lack of focus / analysis paralysis, followed by a very difficult period of ill health in the second half of the year.

    I have resumed working on 100k Ultra for the drop ship side of things so I figure I could start to work on an authority site and kindle. I think that will actually help on those bad days when the doubts and insecurities get the better of me. Knowing that eComm is one pillar of my future business… What do you think?

    I received access to Authority Hybrid Elite a while back. Is that still sufficiently up to date that I could work through that training for getting an authority site going? Should I follow that training or would you recommend I stick to the more recent additions to training that are available in Blueprint Pro?

    Thanks
    Neill

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      If you want to do affiliate sites Neil, then refer to the Affiliate Cashflow Cheatsheet (inside Blueprint Pro), which I believe you have access to (it’s more up to date than Authority Hybrid Elite). I would certainly make eCom one of your pillars, and Kindle is good to get some runs on the board, and at least cover your costs..

      • Neil Tribe  says:

        Thanks Aidan. I’ll follow up on that. Is it worth looking at the Authority Hybrid training as well, or just stick to the Affiliate Cashflow Cheatsheet? Is Authority Hybrid too outdated now?

        Thanks.

        Loving the 12 Days series

        Neil

  • CB  says:

    Working towards this right now..been wanting to move to Thailand for a while and the nomad lifestyle fits the bill.

  • Lora  says:

    Living life to its fullest is the way! Love reading this, very cool!

  • Lee  says:

    Lovely for a single male, footloose and fancy free but,you must have had some money to start your venture. . .Aidan, didn’t walk from N.Z. to Buenos Aires and arriving in a strange city requires money for a hotel until accommodations can be arranged. $539, a month, for a room sounds great but you have to eat and pay for transportation. BTW don’t get sick – it could empty your bank account.

    I don’t think we are getting the full story here.

    I wouldn’t advise any woman to go rushing off to find adventure in a strange city. Not knowing the language can prove disastrous. If nothing else, persuade a friend to go with you.

    If you want to take off and explore this wonderful world, first save some money so you are not hauled off to jail after the first month for vagrancy. Next,learn at least a few sentences in the local language. You will now need vaccinations, a passport and possibly Visas to enter the country. If you know where you are headed visit the local Embassy and checkout what you will need for staying. If you require medications, make sure they are available locally at a price you can afford. Carry a spare pair of glasses!

    Finally, be careful, Some countries that look so appealing have a dark belly underneath that no one talks about.

    Enjoy your adventure but please be careful, these places ain’t America/Canada/UK/Australia etc.

    . . . . . .

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      Hi Lee… this post is meant to give you food for thought, not be an exact blueprint. When I arrived to Buenos Aires, I started living with my girlfriend, so I didn’t even have rent. Soon after, I bought my apartment with a personal loan from a New Zealand bank. I paid that back month by month by building my online business.

      I paid for cheap but comprehensive insurance, it cost me about $100/month. I was 22 years old at the time.. so quite comfortable living cheap, I’m not saying it’s easy for everyone though. I studied spanish from a handbook before coming, and then realised that most people my age in Buenos Aires spoke at least some English anyway.. I enrolled to study Spanish at the University of Buenos Aires and studied that for two full years.. the cost was minimal.. several hundred dollars per year (the university is state owned, non profit).

      I actually advise people to jump in the deep end and learn to swim. Shit happens sometimes and you need to dig your way out of tight situations.. but that’s character building, and depending on your outlook, can make things all the more fun..

      Again, I’m not giving YOU a blueprint here, just sharing a story. All the best for 2017 🙂

  • Tamara B.  says:

    I Totally agree with Aiden, roam on!

    I lived, by choice, for several years before I was married, in my truck with a shell and a carpet kit and I found I’m happiest living in a house on wheels. I’m a roamer married to a nester. My nester is very tall and could not sleep with their legs straight in my truck (and with their legs bent I couldn’t sleep as they were bent into my space). A Primary financial goal I’m using to drive me to online business success in 2017 is to buy house where I can park a camper van and my husband and I can happily (and comfortably) alternate nesting and roaming. 🙂

  • Kit  says:

    While I could never get my husband to even visit these places we do want to buy a motor home this year and travel the USA weeks at a time. Very doable with all you two are sharing in these posts. After a year of multiple surgeries my husband has had…hip replacements, carpel tunnel and more…I am so ready to change our lives.

    Starting my mornings with you all is inspiring. Thanks.

  • Ewa  says:

    Great article! Inspiring!

  • Vanessa  says:

    Hi Aidan & Steve
    This is inspiring and motivational. I love the convenience of having an online business and I hope to achieve much more in 2017 as far as my business is concerned. My goal is to make this new year the turning point to walk away from my day time job. Thanks again guys.

  • Aidan and Steve  says:

    Thanks for all the comments guys! I know not all the places I’ve mentioned are desirable to everyone, and I COMPLETELY understand that.. but the moral of the story is about Freedom.. finding your happy place, breaking down what reality looks like to be able to live there (which may be in your home town!), and working to make it enjoyable and comfortable from a financial standpoint. Thanks again for the comments! We love getting comments from you all 🙂

  • Lj  says:

    Interesting info Thanks – Ecuador also offers some fabulous opportunities.

  • BABATUNDE KUNLE GBADAMOSI  says:

    Loved your postings

  • J Farnsworth  says:

    Thanks for the perspective on how easy it is to travel and work from any location. I have a few friends that list their apartments/homes on Airbnb.com. (They make a nice income from it and occasionally travelers will rent for several months.) I think it allows you to see how natives live (which you might not always see when staying in a hotel). When I’ve looked at Airbnb.com or similar sites, I’m amazed at some of the places you can stay.

    Whether someone wants to travel or not, freedom to do and achieve our dreams isn’t out of our reach…sometimes it’s changing our perspective to be able to reach our dreams. For example, my mom’s parents traveled the world (and my mom traveled the world too). When computers were introduced, they were willing to learn how to use one. My dad’s parents never left North America and were quite content to stay on their farm and in their community. My grandmother was afraid to touch a computer because she might ‘break it’ (which still makes me laugh).

    Like Steve said, I have to know what I really want. Then, like Aidan said, create an income sources to cover my different expenses.

    Thanks for the information and your perspective on what is possible.

  • J Farnsworth  says:

    and, I’m working on my kindle book business. Should be releasing another book in a couple of days.

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      Good luck with your book launch!

      • J Farnsworth  says:

        Thanks.

  • Garry Peebles  says:

    You guys are legends, really appreciate the insights and the positiveness that you have always shown this group, I am still working through trying to find my Niche but know that with the help you have shown and given me and as long as I follow the system…..it will come……

  • Mark Gunter  says:

    Thanks to both of you guys.
    Awesome story and looking forward to the Bootcamp on 4th January.

  • Tessa sanos  says:

    So inspirational! Looking forward to my kids getting older so we can take advantage of the freedom this business provides! Retiring in Thailand sound nice…:)

  • John  says:

    Hi Aidan
    This really puts things in perspective. I think we often feel we need millions of dollars to be successful, but we can achieve the lifestyle we want on much much less. Thanks for the insights each year over these 12 days. They are great to wake up to!

  • Pam  says:

    I’m also feeling those itchy feet from reading your post, especially seeing the breakdowns on how inexpensive it is to live elsewhere! It sure gives additional incentives to build a business that can support those itchy feet! Here’s to traveling in 2017 and working my business from greener and different pastures!

  • scott  says:

    Great perspective on the breakdown for various travel places. Playa del Carmen is a very
    nice place and we hope to travel back there again soon.

  • Elaine  says:

    WoW! Never expected such a pleasant side note of our 12 day training. Great research. I LOVE THIS! Thank you for helping us imagine More!

  • Elaine  says:

    OOOOOPPPS!!! 🙂

  • Laurie  says:

    That’s what I’m looking for — FREEDOM!

  • Jeff Sommers  says:

    I am not one for travelling. Just love family and friend too much and they are all here in Aussie

  • Kay Rennie  says:

    My choice is Italy. Not so cheap perhaps but I’m a student of Latin and would love to spend some time exploring what’s left of the Roman Empire. Thanks Aidan for reminding me that it is achievable.

  • Amber Westover  says:

    Thanks guys! I love the ideas of ways to start a business without advertising.

  • Victoria  says:

    Wonder if anyone’s ever done this successfully with a family? For those that can, go for it. This sounds like such an amazing way to start a business. Very inspirational to live and work in a new place. Great opportunity.

  • Marj  says:

    Hi guys. Just arrived in Mesa, AZ after travelling for three days so I missed those days and have some catching up to do. Very interesting post Aidan – unheard of prices for sure.

  • Wendel  says:

    It’s all about expanding the mind isn’t it. Fueling the dream, finding what’s possible and executing a plan of action. That’s what I got so far. Aidan’s nomadic trip over the last ten years or so simply reignites our own passions that we too can live our dreams. Thanks for sharing

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      Absolutely, it’s all about expanding the mind.. breaking down our built in perceived barriers 🙂

  • Edith Rolle  says:

    Interesting perspectives, got the gray cells tingling! I never thought any of this was doable, now I’m checking into the possibilities. Thanks

  • Amy  says:

    Thanks for the info Aidan. I can’t wait to check out some of these places.

  • Heather  says:

    Thanks Aidan. Really enjoying these posts. Inspired by your perspectives!

  • Paul  says:

    I didn’t get in the 100k factory when it closed last April. Is bootcamp for beginners as well? Thanks for the useful and intriguing read. Always wanted to go to Thailand.

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      Hi Paul, yes, the bootcamp will satisfy the online marketing newbies AND the ninjas 🙂

  • Yolanda  says:

    Awesome post. I have bookmarked this one and plan to look into each of the locations above, I definitely didn’t realize some of the low cost of living available around the world. Thanks guys for providing this.

  • Doug  says:

    A word of warning about China though. The government is very active at blocking internet access to sites such as facebook, google, twitter, etc etc.makes work a real pain, even juggling VPNs. I estimate it takes me 5 times longer to do things on some days. Dial-up speeds and cut offs abound. Heading for Thailand as soon as my contract here expires.

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      Good point Doug, I struggled with internet (even with a VPN) when I was in China earlier this year.

  • tomer cohen  says:

    Aiden, please tell me where can I drop off my kids? lol

  • Nigel Castle  says:

    Great insights and helpful information am very positive about the coming year.

  • Justin  says:

    I love this digital nomad cost of living breakdown Aiden. I’ll second Tomer’s comment: “where do I drop off the kids”!?

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      My son is 7 weeks old.. give me some time to figure that one out, I’ll get back to you 🙂 haha

      Seriously though, depending on the age of your kids (school etc), it’s possible to pack them up and travel together, I’ve seen lots of my friends do it, and I absolutely intend on doing it myself. Obviously it gets more difficult when school starts..

  • Patrice  says:

    You are so inspiring! My goal is to live an untethered lifestyle. And I’ve started writing my ebook modeling it after your CDL training guide, although around a topic I have life experience in. Thanks for the guidance!

  • Richard Read  says:

    Amazing idea! Thanks for the insight 🙂

  • Hernando Quevedo  says:

    Thanks for the great info and wonderful gifts.

    Are you going to have another great business opportunity this year? when could be that
    in orde to be prepared?

    Very, VERY thought provoking Aidan – Thailand would certainly be on my list! Thanks for opening up my mind to the possibility of building my business while resident in another country.

    We got a taste of the Nomadic Lifestyle in 2014/2015. We sold/donated everything off, packed up our kids and dogs and traveled the U.S. for a year! It was an incredible experience! Now we just need to get our IM biz’s making money so we can continue to live that Nomadic Lifestyle! With the knowledge you have shared, Aidan and Steve, I know we can make it happen in 2017! Thank you 💗

  • Kirsten S  says:

    BTW: Aidan, it’s possible to travel/live the Nomadic Lifestyle with kids. Homeschooling is so much easier now (with an internet connection) and the real life education and experiences your child (and future children) receive on the road/traveling is priceless!

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      Great to hear that Kirsten.. Homeschooling is something I really know nothing about 🙂

  • Grant Charge  says:

    Hi Aidan,

    We’ve been based in Chiang Mai, Thailand for the past 9 months and can certainly vouch for the $18/day cost of living! Has all the amenities, facilities and infrastructure, without the craziness of Bangkok.

    Another great resource to research the Nomad Lifestyle is https://nomadlist.com/

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      AWESOME Grant, great having someone back this number up who lives there! 🙂 Thanks for sharing the website, I’m going to check it out

  • Annette  says:

    There’s also Bali – I’ve been there 4 times now and am planning another couple of trips this year. I generally stay on the west coast which is much quieter but have stayed on the other side. It’s cheap living too, with great food and lovely people. You’ll also find that in most countries in South East Asia nearly everyone speaks a bit of English so communicating is not a problem.
    I always take my netbook when I travel and do some work while I’m away and am definitely leaning toward a nomadic lifestyle when my daughter finally becomes independent.
    Another good resource is http://www.internationalliving.com
    Thanks for the inspiration Aidan!

    • Aidan and Steve  says:

      Hi Annette, I haven’t been to Bali, but have heard nice things, would love to go, thanks for the tip!!

    Interesting blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
    it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple
    tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know
    where you got your design. Cheers

  • Barbara George  says:

    Thank you, Aidan, for perspective. I am so caught up with the big city American lifestyle that even some of the numbers in your Time planning video (Day 4) were astounding to me. Location, location, location gives perspective, perspective, perspective :-)!

    This is the reason why I am trying to focus my attention on starting an online business as I do not have the money that is typically needed to start a bricks and mortar business.

  • Bette72  says:

    This post is really interesting, but why it is on 11th
    place in google’s search results. It deserves to be in top 5.
    Many webmasters think that seo is dead in 2016,
    but it is not true. There is sneaky method to reach google’s top 5 that not many
    people know. Simply search for: pandatsor’s tools

    Wendy & Ron, we have been certainly not dealing with Heavens for INTERNET, we live simply discussing Sky’s software program which they offer for you to clients which may have any broadband internet link identified as Heavens By Broadband’ which can be mistreating the bandwidth. There exists absolutely nothing drastically wrong with Stones as a possible INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER as far as i am just informed.

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future
    but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use

    get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would
    be enormously appreciated!

    I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours these days, but I by no means found any
    interesting article like yours. It is beautiful price enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made
    just right content material as you probably did, the web will be much more helpful than ever before.
